    KG Falcon - thoughts?

    Yeah, first time i tried one it was aabout 28# so didn't have a lot of wooomph behind it. I rather liked it and considered getting one. Most recent time, both bows were in the high 40#s and compared to my other bows they kicked like a mule. Guess my tastes change on how it like my bows to feel. 😄

    KG Falcon - thoughts?

    I also shot an Osprey at the same time as the Falcon and again, I wasn't impressed at all at the handshock (it was way worse than the Falcon.) I believe I swore which rather disturbed the sales guy! 😄 To be fair, it has a much thinner handle than the Mohawk, so its not really a like for like...

    KG Falcon - thoughts?

    Sorry to be a downer but I had a go with a Falcon last year at KG and I found it slow and clunky. The hand shock was rather more than I was expecting too. I really wanted to like it as its a nice looking and unique bow, but I felt genuinely bummed out that it felt so meeeeh to shoot. :( I also...

    Archery shops - Are they taking the mick? (Online orders)

    😄 I know this well... This shop does have a good selection of stuff, but they do really need to sort out their delivery charges system as I've been put off a few times at the "jumps" in costs on irrelevant bits. For example, go and put 2 packs of "nitro pin nocks" in your basket. Postage is...

    Berlin World Cup Gold match for GB Ladies!

    Don't forget to tune into the world archery YouTube channel at 8.30am on Sunday to watch the GB girls go up against Korea for gold! :D I was lucky enough to be in Berlin this week, I watched them squeak through a couple of shoot offs, Germany and a very confused looking Taipei on their way to...

    Are we not interested anymore

    Added the Tempest and the Stolid Bull. Agree with Whitehart, not a lot you can do about protecting IP on riser design, but it seems like the more of them with this design that come out the less it makes it relevant.

    Are we not interested anymore

    The new riser from MK is looking rather nice ... Looks to be a standard ILF fitting rather than the dual system of the Alpha. It looks very similar to the original Samick Masters riser (pictured below) ... I suppose it was a design one of the engineers that left Samick had done himself and...

    [OTHER] Choice of two bows ... Osprey or Cobra ?

    Looking to buy another traditional bow for a bit of fun and I think I've narrowed it down to two .... So ... KG Osprey or Timber Creek Cobra. Both roughly the same price and recurve. I shot an Osprey a few weeks ago and thought it was very nice indeed, but I've not seen much on the Cobra apart...

    Awesome new training bows.

    Has anyone else seen these? Being able to add all your usual sights and stabilisers to it so it feels just like your real bow. These would be great to use when you just can't get any shooting done due to location or weather. Pretty much the cost of a real bow though...

    Oh Jin Hyek ... did he forget to sign his score ?

    I've just seen him relegated from about 5th down to last place (58th) and his second round has been removed and given a 0. I wonder what happened ? Recurve Men [After 72 Arrows]

    Frustration at Medellin

    Slightly off topic, but I've had a couple of people ask me for the score sheets that I mentioned.. Men's 1st 2746 Last (63rd) 2647 Women's 1st 2752 Last (64th) 2640 :eye-poppi Yeah... I think the way it is at the moment (very entertaining and infinitely watchable head to heads) is a much...
